Luna – We Are Addicted to Malamutes

Two Malamutes were fun and although they didn’t live in the same home, Zoey with Meital and our parents and Ty with me (Itay) and Ido, they did get to meet every day. Our parents, well, specifically our mom, who was converted into a dog lover (at least the big ones), one day while standing outside on the balcony with Meital, dropped the idea of getting another female. The reasoning behind the idea was, that Meital won’t stay forever with our parents and when she leaves, she’ll probably take Zoey with her.

A few minutes later, so they don’t change their minds, we talked with Ayelet (as always) about a last female she was keeping from a litter between one of her females, Majury, and Wind’s Fury Jacob Trailblazer. Fortunately, she wasn’t thinking of keeping this female puppy for herself, instead, she was looking for a family she already knows, that already got a Malamute from her and were prepared to attend in dog shows with that puppy. Because we were exactly what she was looking for (yes, our dogs attend in dog shows) we ended up with Luna.

Luna, Or in her full name, Luna Leads to Perfection of Ayla Alaskan Beauty, was born on the 12th of August 2012 and we took her home when she was about two and a half months old. In the first week or two, she had the house for herself, because we didn’t want Zoey to meet her before she gets her confidence up (a lesson we learned the first time Zoey met Ty, we’ll write about it in a future post).

A few weeks later, after Zoey and her already met and became best friends (well, at least most of the time), we’ve started noticing she was different from Zoey and Ty, she was A LOT SMARTER. The first time we’ve noticed that was at a time we were about to open the closet where we keep her food. Now with Zoey and Ty, they get all excited trying to get a glimpse at “that large thing the food is coming out of”. As I (Itay) was opening the door, I’ve noticed she was sitting quietly beside me and instead of looking at the bag, she was looking at my hand with a curious look, It was almost like she was thinking “so this is how they do it”. With time, it became much more obvious, especially when there was something she wanted chew that wasn’t hers. The deceptions, the multi-step “thefts”, the “but look, I’m so cute” face every time we found something she completely destroyed, GENIUS!
